Today we printed a small handful of polyhedra that represent crystal mineral models for geologist Amy Thompson at Bridgewater College. We used nischi’s Crystal Structures Models on Thingiverse to start; in the future we hope to make OpenSCAD versions of a much large collection of crystal models, for example those cataloged by Cochise College or found in the Manual of Mineralogy and Petrology.
